The world's smallest uncompressed video recorder
HyperDeck Shuttle dramatically improves the quality of video cameras and is the perfect portable field recorder for live production switchers! It's also the ultimate solution for digital signage. HyperDeck Shuttle gives you the quality and flexibility of compressed DNxHD, ProRes and uncompressed recording direct to common low cost SSDs in the smallest possible size. HyperDeck Shuttle is compact, affordable and battery powered so it’s perfect as a field recorder. HyperDeck Shuttle bypasses your camera’s compression and records from SDI and HDMI direct into the highest quality video possible! SSDs are cheap and fast, so you can edit directly from the SSD media itself. SSDs eliminate time wasting file copying.

Compressed or Uncompressed
Now you have the freedom to work in both compressed and uncompressed video depending on the needs of your project! Uncompressed video will always produce the highest quality mathematically perfect results and is ideal when recording video for color correction, chroma keying and high end VFX work. When you need longer recording duration or you're working with lots of video material, HyperDeck Shuttle 2 can be instantly changed over to use Apple ProRes HQ or  DNxHD MXF compressed video files. The popular Avid DNxHD is a SMPTE standard codec that's used by thousands of broadcast and post production facilities worldwide as it maintains the highest 10-bit video quality with the advantage of smaller file sizes.

Go Anywhere, Record Everywhere
With a compact and incredibly sturdy design, HyperDeck Shuttle is machined out of a solid block of aircraft grade aluminum! That means you get a design with the strength to go anywhere! Take your HyperDeck Shuttle into the field, on set, to live events, or even on your extreme sport shoots. With an internal battery, just recharge and go! The possibilities are virtually endless.

Solid State Disk (SSD) Technology
Simply plug a 2.5” solid state disk into HyperDeck Shuttle and you get video recording with blazing fast speed, low power consumption and totally silent operation. Now you can eliminate complicated and expensive disk arrays. A single SSD can record either compressed or uncompressed video effortlessly! Removable media like CF and SxS cards simply cannot match that kind of performance and require slow file copying to use.

Faster Cost Effective Workflows
HyperDeck Shuttle improves every step of your production workflow pipeline. For quick on set client preview, connect HyperDeck Shuttle to a projector or TV via the HDMI or SDI outputs. Mount an SSD drive to a computer for instant access to video files.

Familiar VTR Feel
HyperDeck Shuttle has standard deck style function buttons, as well as LEDs that indicate input signal lock, recording and battery status. With the affordable HyperDeck Shuttle you won’t be tying up your expensive VTRs, but you’ll still be in familiar operating territory.

Unparalleled File Compatibility
HyperDeck Shuttle captures universally compatible uncompressed QuickTime files and compressed Avid DNxHD MXF files. Perfect for working with Media Composer, EDIUS, Final Cut Pro, Premiere and leading video applications including DaVinci Resolve.

Connect to Professional or Consumer Cameras
With SDI and HDMI inputs and outputs, HyperDeck Shuttle works with virtually every camera, deck or monitor! Effortlessly plug into monitors or televisions for instant on set preview. Use HyperDeck Shuttle as the video playback source for digital signage systems or switchers. Imagine using HyperDeck Shuttle connected to a live production switcher for recording events, and then using it for live playback. HyperDeck Shuttle can do almost anything and it’s so small you’ll take it everywhere.

Important Notes About SSD Speed

Some models of SSD can’t save video data at the speed the manufacturer claims. This is due to the disk using hidden data compression to attain higher write speeds. This data compression can only save data at the manufacturer’s claimed speed when storing data such as blank data or simple files. Video data includes video noise and pixels which are more random so compression will not help, therefore revealing the true speed of the disk.

Some SSDs can have up to 50% lower write speed than the manufacturer’s claimed speed. So even though the disk specifications claim an SSD has speeds fast enough to handle video, in reality the disk isn’t fast enough when used to store video data for real time capture. However, this mostly affects HD capture and often these disks can still be used for playback.

Use Blackmagic Disk Speed Test to accurately measure whether your SSD will be able to handle uncompressed video capture and playback. Blackmagic Disk Speed Test uses data to simulate the storage of video so you get results similar to what you’ll see when capturing video to a disk. During Blackmagic testing, we have found newer, larger models of SSD and larger capacity SSDs are generally faster.
